August 15, 2019 – R.D. Olson Construction, an award-winning general contracting firm in California, has completed AC Hotel Los Angeles South Bay, a 98,728-square-foot, six-story hotel in the heart of El Segundo’s business district. Catering to business and leisure travelers as well as locals, the hotel features four tech-enabled meeting spaces and El Segundo’s first rooftop bar with exterior benches and a fire table.
Located at 2130 Maple Ave., the hotel offers 106 king and 74 double queen room options with a European-style, contemporary design. The hotel’s AC Lobby Lounge acts as a communal workspace by day and social gathering space by night. Additional amenities include a first-floor bar and terrace with a fireplace and a water feature, a 24- hour fitness room and AC Kitchen – a European-style restaurant serving a variety of breakfast options.
The hotel is in close proximity to Los Angeles International Airport, the Los Angeles Lakers training facility and the new Los Angeles Stadium and Entertainment District, which will be home to the Rams and Chargers starting in 2020. These landmarks, along with the Hollywood sign, can be seen from the hotel’s panoramic rooftop deck.
“The AC Hotel Los Angeles South Bay offers the perfect mix of work and play for guests and locals alike, and is set in a prime location near some of Los Angeles’ hottest attractions as well as a variety of Fortune 500 businesses,” said Bill Wilhelm, president of R.D. Olson Construction. “Building on R.D. Olson’s longstanding partnership with Marriott, this marks our second project for AC Hotel.”
R.D. Olson Construction worked alongside Welcome Group, Inc., AXIS/GFA Architecture + Design, Design Force Corporation and Robison Engineering, Inc on the project.
